A warm welcome from Nik Pears, Prep School Head

A warm welcome to all visitors. I hope you find the Kent College Prep School website a helpful resource and a good introduction to what is a truly wonderful school. Set in the heart of the beautiful Kent countryside, our 80-acre site not only affords our children a beautiful setting in which to learn, but also a safe environment to explore and in which to grow.

A Whole School Approach

We cater for pupils rising 3 to 11 years, with boys being welcomed to the Nursery from September. The Prep School benefits tremendously from being part of a wider school. Many of the superb resources of the Senior School are at our disposal which means we can offer a broad and balanced curriculum with a huge variety of extra-curricular activities. From your child's first days we are keen to ensure that they and their families become part of the KC community and feel a real sense of belonging to the school as a whole.

ISI Inspection

The findings of our ISI inspection reported that from the EYFS onwards, pupils' achievement is excellent and they attain high standards in their work. Academic standards here are high, opportunities for sports and the creative arts abound, and above all the well-being of our pupils is priority one. As a Growth Mindset School, my colleagues and I help children to understand that their intelligence is not fixed and when opportunity meets hard work and focused effort, the possibilities of what can be achieved are endless. We are mindful to teach our children that taking risks and making mistakes are an integral part of the process of learning.

Welcoming Boys to the Nursery in September 2020

Our families tell us they appreciate our academic excellence, pastoral support and the wraparound care we provide to help working parents. Our unique blend of individual attention and high aspirations has led many parents to ask whether we would consider extending our provision to boys. The benefits to busy parents of one school for all the family are obvious - one commute, one calendar and one community. So we are delighted to be welcoming boys into our Caterpillar and Butterfly classes this September.
